Cyclone Tauktae batters India's Gujarat state as hundreds of thousands told to evacuate

Global News shows that India is evacuating thousands of people from low-lying areas along its western coast as a powerful cyclone, Cyclone Tauktae, has thus far killed at least six people and is expected to make landfall on Tuesday morning in the state of Gujarat. 

Cyclone Tauktae, which formed in the Arabian Sea, has already brought lashing rain and winds that damaged houses and uprooted trees to parts of western and southern India.

The storm wreaked havoc in the busy coastal city of Mumbai, forcing the commuter train system to shut down due to floods and high winds.
